We used this boat company to carry us over to the Boldt castle. They dropped us off for the tour and then picked us back up when we were done. They were very nice.

This a great tour of the St. Lawrence river area near Alex Bay. The tour guide was hilarious! Really good way to get a feel for the area.

We were lucky enough to get a 70 degree day in late October to enjoy a pleasant 2 hour tour through the Thousand Islands. The area was beautiful, especially with the color changes of the season adding an extra touch to an already scenic landscape....More

Old boats with loud engines - awkward seating and a tour guide you can barely make out over all the noise. The only reason for Uncle Sam tours is to get to the castles which both Singer and Boldt were fantastic experiences. If your goal...More

If you would like to go to Boldt Castle first, you could take the water taxi. The Uncle Sam tours will take you on the tour then on the way back to Alexandria Bay, the Boldt Castle stop on the way back.
